This would be extremely beneficial, as XSL seems to be where most institutions need support. On our staff, Loren Scherbak is our XSL guru. She is on vacation in Alaska -- a great time to offer her assistance in compiling the FAQ section! I'll be sure to mention this to her upon her return.

A seemingly large portion of messages to this list concern XSL, and other somewhat technical themes, and while this is perhaps not the best forum for discussing these more technically oriented issues, it makes sense for EAD-XSL questions to be asked here. It would further appear to me that some help documentation in this area might prove useful to a number of people.
Such documentation already exists in many places, on the web and in print, but I wonder if specifically archival examples would better illustrate some XSL (and related) issues. The Guidelines, Chapters 4-6, are one great resource, as is the Cookbook; perhaps these can be supplemented with an XSL FAQ/ tutorial/ annotated "code library" ?
What do others think? Would this be useful to you, what form should it take? Would you be interested in collaborating in producing such documentation?
